On an HP Pavillion 6573Z desktop.
Upgraded to Win2000, and soundcard does not appear in Device driver.

Do I need to download a driver?

Which one for the riptide soundcard?

Sorry, don't have more info that that.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. I have a HP pavilion 8576c desktop PC that came with Windows 98. I upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional some time ago. This also had the Riptide sound card, and I seem to remember it was part of the modem. I searched for drivers, never did have any luck. I ended up installing a sound card and a modem. I am still using this PC, works great. In fact, I upgraded the processor from 450 Mhz PIII to 1.3 Ghz (from Power Leap) even though HP told me the best I could do was 850 Mhz.

Humm, just looked through my junk pile and found the card I took out of the HP. Sure enough, it is the Reptide sound card and modem combined.

It wouln't hurt to try it. I worked on trying to get mine working for some time with no luck. That is why I changed it out. I got a Mad Dog sound card from Compusa for about $20.00. I also had to get a modem, couldn't get either sound or modem on that card to work. I don't believe it is W2K/WXP compatible.
